Featured Poets: Brian Lucas, Valerie Witte, Brian Strang

BRIAN LUCAS, back from six years in Bangkok, Thailand now lives on the island of Alameda. He is the author of Light House (2006 from Meeting Eyes Bindery/Spuyten Duyvil, 2006), and has recently completed a manuscript called Circles Matter. He has been collaborating with Andrew Joron, and together they have created a chapbook entitled Force Fields (forthcoming from Hooke Press) which features a poem from Joron and drawings from Lucas. His work has been published in such magazines as Sulfur, Conjunctions, Hambone, Talisman, Beard of Bees, Gut Cult, and Galatea Resurrects. He paints more often than he writes, and co-edits 2ND MYND with Brian Strang!

VALERIE WITTE received her MFA in Writing from the University of San Francisco. Her work has appeared in Faultline, Switchback, the Southwestern Review, and elsewhere. She spends her daytime hours editing computer books in Berkeley.

BRIAN STRANG lives in Oakland and teaches English composition at San Francisco State University and Merritt College. He is the author of Incretion (Spuyten Duyvil) and machinations (a free Duration ebook) and several chapbooks, including recently Human-Sized and Inhabitants, a chapbook of poem/drawings. Both are from Peter Ganick's small-chapbook-project. Recent poem/paintings can be seen at his website, Sorry Nature and at Deep Oakland. His poems, reviews, essays and translations have appeared in many journals including New American Writing, The Denver Quarterly and Ur-Vox. Recently, his work appeared in translation in the Portuguese journal DiVersos.
In January, Canessa will feature the second solo show of his poem paintings.
